    People using a sauna 4-7 times per week had a 61% lower risk of stroke during an average follow-up of 14.9 years compared to people using a sauna once per week according to a study from Finland.

    Other studies have found that people using a sauna 4-7 times per week had a 40% lower risk of dying and a 65% lower risk of Alzheimer’s.
